Satan's Jewel Crown 

E               B                    E
Now if I were a queen and a ruler of nations
A                            E
With diamonds and jewels profound
                 B                E
Well, I'd rather know that I had salvation 
                B 
Than to know my reward
                       E
Would be Satan's jewel crown
              B
Satan's jewel crown
                E    A                               E
I've worn it so long but God for my soul has reached down
                B
His love set me free
               E                       B
He made me his own, and helped me cast off
              E            B        E
Satan's jewel crown
                    B                  E
Oh, the life that I live so sinful and needless
A                    E
Drinkin' and runnin' around
                      B                      E
All the things that I do for the love of the devil
          B
I know my reward 
                      E
Will be Satan's jewel crown
              B                     E
Satan's jewel crown I've worn it so long
A                               E
But God for my soul has reached down
                B
His love set me free
                E                       B
He made me  his own, and helped me cast off
              E     A  E
Satan's jewel crown
